[PLUG] OT: IPhones and H.O.P.E


Just got back from the H.O.P.E(Hackers On Planet Earth) Conference in New York. Since mobile phones were brought up and I know people will get a kick out of this. The new IPhone was discussed in great detail at the con and the more political(Hackactivism) and privacy advocate security people essentially called it "The End to Privacy As We Know It". Because of all its Google peachy kean tracking features. The disturbing part is that we are doing it to ourselves, no Big Brother here. It's more like Google; our big buddy. We seem to me mesmerized by shinny cell phones and in the process sign away our rights; sigh.
